Concerned about Hammer

Noticed a little while after feeding a loooooong brown strand coming out of my Hammer coral. It broke off before I could snap a pic but this thing was like 8 inches no exaggeration. Any ideas what this could be? Color is still good but it did shrink down to about 40% if itís normal size while this was going on.

Did you acclimate it to the new light source slowly? If Params are good it could just be expelling waste. Worst case scenario itís expelling zooxanthellae. I would try moving it to a lower light lower flow area for a bit.

Yes I increased lighting slowly. Parameters are good, this is just now the first time that Iíve noticed it doing this but I can see on the powerhead where it has happened before and the strings of whatever it is are on the back side of the head. I was hoping for waste but it seems like a bit much to just be waste.
